Lichtsteiner - JuventusArsenal are apparently preparing a bid for Juventus’ Swiss right back Stephan Lichtsteiner.

The Gunners are looking to bolster their defence in January and is attracted by the Swiss international’s Champions League experience.

According to the Daily Mail, Arsenal would be prepared to submit a bid as early as January for the 30 year old who is out of contract at the end of the season, and could leave for a reduced fee.

Talks are expected between the Bianconeri and Lichtsteiner over a new deal, but there have been rumours of Udinese’s Silvan Widmer joining the club as a replacement for his international teammate.

If Lichtsteiner did join Arsenal in January, he would be cup-tied for the Champions League, as he has already played in the competition this season for Juventus.
